Built in 1925, and designed by C. Howard Crane, as the Lincoln Park Theatre. This 600 seat theatre was remodeled by the Canadian based Premier Operating Corp. Ltd. chain in the early-1940’s. It was given an Art Moderne style by another prolific Detroit-area theater architect, Charles N. Agree. After decades as a first-run house, this Streamline-style theatre switched over to pornographic films in the 1970’s, and remained, to the consternation of many, a XXX theater for many years.
Its facade was painted a uniformly drab gray, its storefront windows blocked up and painted over to draw less attention to itself. (Though its bright yellow marquee advertising “Adult Entertainment” certainly is not subtle whatsoever). The auditorium has been demolished and housing built on the site, the front of the building remains, advertising Lincoln Park Lofts.
